I had to buy Jerry a new tank today because his other one somehow got a big crack in it and was leaking.

I got him a bigger tank, a 2 1/2 gal. tank that came with a glass top. Is it ok to put the glass top on? I'm worried he wont get enough oxygen with the glass top on. I know i can buy a screened top for the tank too. Do you think i need to add more rocks? or plants?

you might wanna add more plants.. only if you want though dont over crowd it.. I would maybe add some decor, for fun :).

Yes you want to put the glass top on.Bettas Jump!Coral jumped today when I was feeding her.You could add a little hideout.

thanks. I'll put the top on soon.
I'll probably add one more plant and a few things as decorations.

does you glass top have a little hole in it???

No it has no holes in it. Thats why i'm worried about using it.

I'd be afraid of lack of oxygen, aswell... but I've never used glass hoods for any of my aquariums. I'd probably buy a screen top just to be on the safe side... but thats me. I'm a rather paranoid person. =D

I agree with Chilli
If it doesn't have holes I would buy another one.

Don't use the glass top if it doesn't have any holes... you could get a screened one for around $5 at the pretty much any pet store :) If you don't want to spend your money on a screened top then you could buy some live plants, which let off oxegen. With the screened top or not, I suggest you get some! It decorates the tank, too ^^

We had some live plants but they died on us. I'm going to get him some live plants probably next week. And i know this particular tank comes with a screened top so i may just get that. Thanks for the advice!
